I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Wondershare Filmora is a very affordable and easy to use video editor. I've been using it for some time on my laptop with Windows 7 and have had no problems. It has some excellent features and might be worth considering for Windows 10. Link here for information:

But I find the list/task of picking a program totally overwhelming.Can someone recommend a good free (or minimal cost) video editing program for a Flip Ultra HD video camera?Thanks again to all you kind folks,

A:Best Free Video Editing Software

One question, doesn't the Flipshare software with your camera allow editing of your movies and uploading to YouTube etc.

I'll leave it to others to suggest freeware - I've never found a program which is not restricted in some way.

I use a commercial program, Roxio, not to everyone's taste.

I believe that one of the better programs is Sony Vegas:

Not free, but the basic program is quite reasonably priced and may just be suitable for your needs.

Hi W7Fers,

Is there a shareware or free video editing app out there for Windows 7 that is better than another?.

And can any of them handle the .kmz or .kml format from Google Earth?

Thanks for any input that you can give me.


A:Is there a shareware or free video editing app for Windows 7?

If you're planning on using the software for non-commercial purposes there's a free editing tool called VideoPad (scroll down about a quarter of the way.) VideoPad supports just about any video file format (according to them) but based on personal experience some formats might need to be converted first. As far as Google's kmz or kml formats, they might be proprietary and conversion might not be possible although some products say they can. You might have to experiment a bit.

Use caution at any site offering "free" products. Read the small print because some might have a limited trial basis or hit you with an unexpected fee for using their product. If something sounds too good to be true....

Hey guys,
Today I purchased the Action! screen recorder to record my gaming at 60fps, however I found that my video editing software (Camtasia Studio) cannot render in 60fps.

So I was just wondering, does anyone know a free (or cheap) piece of software that can render AVI files recorded from Action! at 60fps?


A:Free 60fps video editing software?

Free: MovieMaker
"Buy":After Effects, Pinnacle Studio 16, Corel X5

Camtasia is just stupid, many features are missing that should be there. I recommend you to get After Effects or Pinnacle Studio 16.

Hey, I filmed some stuff me and my friends did using my video cam, when I import my footage, it appears as .mov, is there a good, free editor that would edit this for me?


A:Solved: Free Video Editing Software

It looks like you can't do much with mov (quicktime) files. You have to convert them to a mpeg or avi. There's tons of stuff out there for that. I havn't used any of it personally so I'd rather not suggest a program that may or may not screw up your system. It'll have to be pick and choose on that end. Do a google search for "convert mov mpeg" or "convert mov avi"

Once you have it in those formats your choices for video editing are open much wider. should have anything your looking for. Shop around.
Actually here's a fun one for MOV to AVI

And here's their editing search engine.
The site has alot of free or shareware tools

For pdf conversion OpenOffic.Org does it very well and it is totally free. As far as free NLE's go, I dont like any of them. I would reccomend Sony Screenblaster with DVD--its under a 100 bucks and a great NLE to learn on.

Video: there's a bunch that vary in complexity depending on what exactly you want to do and with what file types. Machete Lite is a good free basic editor that can cut out segments of video files, but it only works on WMV and AVI. Hard to answer your question without more details about what you need to do and on what type of files. For instance, do you want to change brightness and contrast or do you just want to chop out certain portions? Do you want to overdub the audio portion of a video file?

Some searching through google, "alternativeto", YouTube, for video and audio editing or recording software, FREEWARE, showed BandiCam, Screencast-o-matic, Audacity, and I've been aware of Windows Movie Maker.
I would like to be able to make audio adjustments and audio changes to a few screencast videos.  I do not really undestand Audacity; but tried learning it many years ago.  I am absolutely not confident nor comfortable with learning Movie Maker; I am not sure how to handle Bandicam, having tried it briefly many many months ago.  I am comfortable with and have used Screencast-o-matic, the free downloadable version, a few times, and it was fairly easy to learn and to use.  I would just like to learn and use something a little bit more clever than Screen-cast-o-matic, and to edit or make changes to some video recordings.  FREE/FREEWARE wanted.

- Edit and draw on the video, replacing the cut piece with a still image, or even another piece of a video

So I guess basically I'm looking for all-out video editing.

I'd prefer freeware. But anything will do if that's all available.

It's no problem if I have to use different programs for each thing.

My current system is a Dell XPS 430 and can handle video editing pretty well.

What do you guys recommend for a free photo editing software package. I dont need a power house package just something to enhance, crop and re-size photos.

I am looking at PhotoScape. It gets good review.


A:Free photo editing software.

Photoscape is fine for what you want. It's a rather unusual package with some tools and options not normally found in such software, but it works fine.

It is rather difficult to "place" photoscape in any "heirarchy" of image software, because it is so unusual.

A lot of people like Picasa , also fine for what you want to do.

This is pretty small, fast, powerful, and easy to use. It can do a lot more than you actually want, and also has a few interesting functions which you might like;


There are lots of "medium range" graphics/image packages freely available, and many have the same functions, so it comes down to what you like personally or which interface you prefer.

Gimp -

GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.Click to expand...


Neat Image -

Neat Image is a filter designed to reduce visible noise and grain in photographic images produced by digital cameras and scanners. Neat Image is indispensable in low-light (indoors, night, astro) and high-speed (sport, action) photography. It is a tool for both professional photographers and digital image processing enthusiastsClick to expand...

This is one of my favorites, the freeware version is slightly limited such as only being able to output high quality jpg's instead of lossless formats but for final processing of an image it's outstanding. I do a lot of video work and frequently use screenshots from the video in other applications and this is invaluable for cleaning up very noisy images from old VHS. Also works well for cleaning images that you have scaled up. Standalone or Photoshop plug-in.



This is image utility program for viewing, editing or even stamping images with EXIF data. Has some other features as well.

I'm currently running Windows XP Pro. The only thing I've always been jealous of about Mac is iMovie, as it is the best movie editing software, no doubt. However, lately I was looking for a Windows alternative. I've found Corel VideoStudio and Adobe Premier Elements (paid), but I can't afford them and I don't want to use software cracks.

I looked at Avidemux and VirtualDub, but both seem to have different interfaces from iMovie (no timeline). So I looked a little further for some movie editing software for Windows I could get for free. I found:

Avid FreeDV
Does anyone have any experience with those? I'd like to see a comparison.

i have a couple laptops that both came with windows 8.1 that im going to be selling. both were upgraded to win10 during the free upgrade period and both are currently on anniversary edition. when i look at the activation page, it says "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your microsoft account". naturally, i will reset windows before sale so does this mean the new owner will not be able to activate windows 10 since it wont be done with my acct? do i need to track down restore media for each and put win8 back on?

A:is the free win10 upgrade transferable to another owner?

That's actually very interesting because historically and even when I had my stint on Windows 10, the license is tied to the machine, not the user. What I would do is reset those laptops and set them up with a local account and see if the activation status is an issue.

I already know about the trick where you update then revert, and the computer you updated on will be able to upgrade again for free after July 29th, but what if I won't have the computer I want to upgrade until after this date?

I'm getting a MacBook Air in August. I like how any programs made for Macs will work (for the most part) because each Mac has set specs, but I'm not a huge fan of the Mac OS. But then I learned about dual booting on Mac, and so I thought that if I dual booted Mac and Windows I'd get the best of both worlds. But then I learned that Windows 10 will only be free until July 29th, so is there a way I can 'reserve' the copy until then? Or will I just have to pay the $119 if I really want to do it?

A:Can I get Win10 for free after July 29th this year?

Someone else might think of a way but the answer is no. You can't get a free upgrade after 7/29.

Hi, I don't know much about photo editing, and I'm looking for a program for a specific task. I'd like to edit a photo for a friend of mine. She wants to get a nose job, and I'd like to take a profile picture of her and either edit the shape of the nose, or paint the background around the nose, to in effect, change the shape of it. I hope that makes sense, lol. Can anyone suggest a program which can do this? I remember a few years ago, I think Corel Draw on my mom's computer allowed you to 'paint' or fill in the background.

I have a 1.8 P-4 older machine with an older ATI graphics card--I forget what model but not one of the higher end gaming models. When I edit videos, the video and the sound don't stay in sinc and the video freezes. I'm not sure if its the older processor or the video card or what. I'm looking to get a 3+ with 833 FSB, which should be plenty for video editing, but don't want it to bottle up with the video card. I also don't want an expensive gaming card if I don't need one, but obviously those things are built for really intensive graphics, but I don't think I need that just for video editing.

I hope the question isn't too cryptic, but here is the issue: I have processes running like Calculator, Photo's, Cortana since starting up my computer this morning that I haven't started. I have used these programs in the past and it looks like Windows runs these programs in the background just in case I want to use them again. Is there any way to get rid of those (prefetch?)? It uses memory (albeit little) and some of the programs I've started once and never use again (like Cortana).

Thanks for any insight.. I haven't found any info on this through googling the matter....

A:Why does Win10 run programs that I have used before but didn't start?

If you are doing a hybrid shutdown many of the apps you have used will stay in memory and will be stored in a hiberfile so they are ready for use again when you need them. Effectively it is a resume rather than a restart. A full shutdown should clear them from memory so that they are not there when you next start your PC.
